About this Event
Instructor - Jim Bredt

Jim Bredt has been an amateur cartoonist for over 40 years and has assisted in teaching figure drawing at Artisan's Asylum for about 5 years. The method he uses could be called the "Beans, Boxes, and Triangles" method as it was taught by Aliza Vaida at AA in Somerville prior to 2020. The goal is to maintain a relaxed, social atmosphere where the students are comfortable to achieve their full potential.

Class Description

This is a weekly open studio class where people of all artistic levels are invited to explore the human form through drawing and painting from a live nude model. It's a great way to sharpen up skills that have become rusty during the pandemic or to practice something new. The instructor is there to offer advice or to give more detailed instructions if you want them.

Each session starts out with fast "gesture" poses up to the first break, and then the poses get longer so you can focus on the details. There is no set progression from one class to the next. You can jump in any time.

Class Goals
  • Steady improvement in drawing skills.
  • Improved perception of light and the 3-dimensional world.
Material Supplied

A Live Model

Students Should Bring

Drawing or painting supplies of your choice. Drawing surface. For beginners, a pencil and a large paper pad are recommended.
